"The entire body,
if adequately nourished,
functions to maintain,
repair, and heal itself
to the best advantage,
if its structure
and physiological functions
are in proper order.
"

Osteopathy is a natural medicine ambracing the concept of a human body as a functional unit. It recognizes that all the systems of the body are interrelated so that a small disturbance in one part of the body may greatly impact the function of another.

Osteopaths are taught to treat the body as a whole, focusing on the underlying cause and imbalance while at the same time re-establishing harmonious relationships between the body's various systems (circulatory, musculoskeletal, neural, etc.). When all parts of the body are in correct relationship to one another and free to move within their normal range of motion then the body has the necessary elements to attain and maintain optimal health for self-healing.

Osteopathy deals with a wide variety of health problems ranging from women's health issues, to sports injuries and musculoskeletal problems such as back and neck pain.

Osteopathic practitioners have attained a high level of education and use a broad range of hands on techniques to diagnose and treat. These may include cranial sacral therapy, muscle energy techniques, rhythmic passive joint mobilization and osteo-articular techniques to restore normal structure and remove restrictions. Treatments are highly individualized and dependent on the individual's dysfunction and needs to heal.
